Exquisite Pain

October 26, 2011
White as snow,
Cold as ice,
His body lays.

On the ground,
In the night,
Nobody knows.

Of the boy,
Who alone,
Cried out in pain.

And anger,
Overtook him.

Driving him,
To end it.
To end it all.

The tears slid,
Down his cheeks,
Swollen and red.

The beatings,
And abuse,
Too much to bear.

He reached,
For the Knife,
And ran far away.

In darkness,
He fled.
To meet his death.

The pressure,
Of the blade,
Against his skin.

The ribbon,
Of scarlet,
Exquisite pain.

He feels it.
The end,
It's finally here.

He draws in,
His last breath,
Forever asleep.

White as snow,
Cold as ice,
His body lays.

On the ground,
In the night,
Nobody knows.

This is amazing.. Its kind of morbid, which i like. My mind is always morbid in its thoughts... Sometimes they take over me... I really like this poem however... Your words are amazing.

I like how it happened to a boy. not...that i have anythign against boys. :' there are just more fictitous suicide stories about girls than boys, so its different. I like  where you made one ling end and the other begin, too. :) nice job.

This is really good. :) I love how you used "On the ground, in the night, nobody knows", in the beginning and also used it in your conclusion. This reminds me of something I would write. :) Well done. Very well done. If you wouldn't mind, I'd love if you commented on some of my poems. I haven't had any published yet, but I've posted some in the poetry and lyrics thread. Please and thank you. (: I will return the favor.
